February = LOVE IN ART

Hurray, January is over. We are looking forward to Valentine's Day and the Art Salon For Fertile Minds.   When considering possible conversation starters for this month, one of our regulars, Doug S. suggested the following:

"The celebration of sex (and/or nudity) ... in fiction, in poetry, in painting, in photography ... generally, in Art.  Why do it?  Why shy away?  Are we too inhibited as American artists?  Is the American public too inhibited or prudish?  That seems ironic, doesn't it?

Thanks Doug for getting us started.  Join us for these conversation starters and more.  Circle your calendar for February 13th. Come and share a beverage with us and a Valentine treat.

 

Look forward to seeing you at a future gathering.

    What an evening of fun variety, from live music performance to poetry to spoken word to heartfelt sharing. Thanks to all who participated.

    It's really good to have a "thought starter" to get everyone going - actually having stimulus (art, spoken word, music, sculpture, etc) is even better! Good conversation!

    As always, I enjoyed the lively discussion, which charted a course in and out and over and through the mysterious topography of love and to many points beyond. My gratitude to Wendy & Karl for the chance to spotlight my creative efforts, it was great fun.

    I forgot that I have a dentist appointment in the late afternoon and my mouth will still be frozen, so I think I will have to catch this group another time. Don't want to drool all over the place! Sorry!

    FEB = LOVE IN ART...what kind of love? It comes in so many shades from carnal to romantic to empathetic. What is love anyway?
